Blood and Sand – Jennifer M. Lane / #Review @Metal_and_Earth

The Collected Stories of Ramsbolt, #1

When her father goes to prison for crimes against the country, Logan Cole loses everything: her family, her fortune, her future, and her home.

She wants her father to get out of jail and set it all right, but his legal troubles mount. Under a barrage of vicious online threats, she heads for the Canadian border and stops in the smallest cozy town she can find. It’s the perfect place to be anonymous.

But this isn’t the high society she once knew. The only job she can find is at the local bar. And she’s never worked a day in her life.

Lucky for Logan, the town has simple taste, and she makes a name for herself as a hard worker who masters the world of cocktails and brings the town to a new way of drinking. When a tragic accident threatens the bar, Logan has to choose between revealing her true identity to save it or saying goodbye to the only thing she’s ever built on her own in order to save herself.



My Review

Why do people think that children are to blame too when their father make mistakes? Why do they follow them around, insult them, threaten them? Is it not bad enough that they have lost everything they ever had, that their family and the life they have lead is falling apart? People can be so vicious!

So it’s up to the rest of the family to make their own way now, far away from all the hassle.

This is a story about someone taking a chance on you and you fighting their corner to repay them, about becoming part of a community and fitting in, about reconnecting with friends, about finding your way after having lost it.

When someone believes in you, you can conquer the world.

I loved the fluent writing style and might try out one of those delicious sounding cocktails. 🙂 5 stars.

 Thank you, Jennifer M. Lane
